ESP USA Finishes

HANDCRAFTED IN CALIFORNIA

We started the ESP USA project in 2014 when we opened our current factory in North Hollywood CA. This facility allows us to create instruments that continue ESP’s tradition of excellence in guitar building with instruments made in California. Now we’re taking things a step further by offering you the ability to select among available body styles with any offered finish, woods, pickups and hardware color to create your own ESP USA instrument. Or check out our two galleries to view completed instruments at ESP today, and instruments already shipped to authorized dealers and distributors.

We'd like to thank all ESP players for making ESP USA an overwhelming success.

Building an ESP USA guitar to the highest quality standards we've established takes time. Due to the now consistent increase in orders, we have been doubling our efforts to expand our manufacturing to meet this demand. We appreciate your patience as we make these additions.

Here's a list of authorized dealers and distributors for ESP USA guitars. Please get in touch with them for information on their currently available ESP USA models that are available for immediate purchase.

Thanks from your friends at ESP Guitars!

ESP USA TESTIMONIALS

Will Adler - Lamb of God

USA ECLIPSE

"I seriously cannot put this ESP USA Eclipse down. Haven't felt this way about a guitar in quite a while."

Richard ZK - Rammstein

USA ECLIPSE

"Rammstein and Emigrate have a golden rule: No compromises. This also applies to our equipment. Therefore I play ESP and my ESP USA Eclipse."

Alex Skolnick - Testament

USA ECLIPSE

“My ESP USA Eclipse has a classic look and feel that’s different from other Eclipse models. It’s a bit like an aged collectible guitar in a brand new package.”

"Build quality is spot on, can't flaw anything. I love the "not over-polished" ebony fingerboard and the whole color scheme is perfect. Set up is real nice, don't know who assembled it but give them a thumbs up from me!"

Jak Kesper - ESP All Access Member

"The USA ESPs are the most incredible instruments ever to bear the ESP name when it comes to quality, finish and playability. The USA Horizon we just received is absolutely breathtaking. Bravo to that operation."

Nick Yoffe - Axe Palace

"It really fit my playing style and everything perfectly. Almost like it was made for me."

vipprimo - ESP All Access Member

"I have one of the new M-III guitars. They are awesome. Build quality is amazing. Fit and finish is perfect. I really like the roasted maple neck."

Nightfall - ESP All Access Member

"I just got an ESP USA Eclipse with EMGs in it. Man this thing is nice. As close to perfect as it gets."

John A. - ESP All Access Member

"I just received my ESP USA Viper! I own 4 other Vipers. The fretwork is incredible as is the playability and overall fit and finish. This is my dream guitar and I’m thrilled to actually own it."

Cameron Johnson
